Stress eating

Thursday, March 23, 2017

I'm a huge stress eater. I don't know what the deal was yesterday but I chowed down on half a pizza last night. I was so uncomfortably full, it was awful. To top it off, I didn't sleep well last night at all so I am going to count down the time until my employees get out of school today. I've been "off" this whole week with being so tired. As funny as it sounds, I think it was the formal dance my daughter went to on Saturday night. I am just wore out.

I'm interacting with people for close to 12 hours a day, five days a week. And about 4 hours on Saturday's. I love my job but I need that "me" recovery time. Add the stress of a two week overseas trip for both my daughter and I next summer that we had to sign up for by tomorrow. Oh - it just dawned on me that I had gone out last Wednesday night and didn't feel the best on Thursday. That is probably playing into me right now as well.

I've got the left over pizza for lunch today. I don't eat much pizza but this was my mom's homemade pizza, we get to have it about once a year so I won't pass it up. My employees get out of school an hour early today and don't have school tomorrow. I don't have any cakes to decorate this weekend. My plan is to go home this afternoon and probably take a nap. Tomorrow I'll go home about noon and just do nothing. Saturday I'll work for about two hours and go home. So I have a plan in place to get back to "me".

I had a stretch day in my StepBet yesterday. I walked my 10,881 steps. I have one more stretch day to do before Sunday, if I don't hit it today, I'll make sure to hit it tomorrow. When I looked this morning, we were down quite a few people from yesterday. We are now at 695, we started at 776. I didn't weigh myself this morning after my pizza binge last night. I'll get back on the scale tomorrow.

One thing that I've been wanting to do since starting this DietBet / StepBet challenge is trying to get some sort of little workout in each day. I haven't so far but I'm not going to beat myself up about it. I'm getting in more steps each day and trying to make healthier decisions when it comes to eating / drinking. One step at a time right? I'll get through today and plan to do something tomorrow since I will be done working about noon.
